I've noticed a small bubble - it looks kind of like a pimple

Customer Question

I've noticed a small bubble - it looks kind of like a pimple - on my gum. The area is not sensitive at all but should I be worried that it's due to an abscess? I am going to see a dentist as soon as possible (within a few weeks) but if it is an abscess, how worried should I be about it travelling to my brain before I see the dentist?
